A new study has found that using SNAP benefits can help improve memory. The study, which was conducted by the University of California, Davis, looked at a group of low-income adults who were either receiving SNAP benefits or not. The researchers found that those who were receiving SNAP benefits had better memory scores on a variety of tests than those who were not.
The researchers believe that the improved memory scores seen in the SNAP group are due to the fact that SNAP benefits provide access to healthy food. This, in turn, can help to improve brain function. The study’s lead author, Dr. Kellie Rodriguez, said that the findings “support the idea that proper nutrition is important for brain health and cognition.”
If you are eligible for SNAP benefits, this study provides yet another reason to make use of them. Not only can they help improve your memory, but they can also help you access healthy food that you might not otherwise be able to afford.
According to a new study, using food benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) may help improve your memory. Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley, found that SNAP benefits were associated with better verbal memory in low-income adults over the age of 50.
The study, which was published in the journal PLOS ONE, looked at data from over 3,000 participants who were part of the Health and Retirement Study. The researchers found that those who had used SNAP benefits in the past year had better verbal memory scores than those who had not used SNAP benefits.
This is just one of many studies that have found a link between food insecurity and cognitive decline. The authors of the new study say that SNAP benefits could help to offset some of the negative effects of food insecurity on cognitive decline.
This is an important finding, as food insecurity is a growing problem in the United States. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, 42 million Americans lived in food-insecure households in 2016.
The new study provides more evidence that SNAP benefits are an important tool in the fight against food insecurity. The authors say that their findings “support the policy recommendation to strengthen and protect” SNAP benefits.
